Student Council to be syndicated


Student Council, a two-time Grade 1 winner, will retire from racing at the end of the year to enter stud at Millennium Farms, the Paris, Ky., farm announced Tuesday.

Millennium will announce Student Council’s fee later this year. A 6-year-old Kingmambo horse, Student Council is pointing for the Aug. 24 Pacific Classic at Del Mar.

According to the announcement, Millennium Farms intends to syndicate Student Council, and at least one shareholder already has made himself known: the horse’s breeder, Lane’s End owner Will Farish. Lane’s End stands Kingmambo.

Millennium Farms has campaigned Student Council since privately purchasing him from Farish last August. By that point Student Council already had won the Maxxam Gold Cup at Sam Houston and placed in a pair of Grade 3 stakes, the Razorback Handicap and Alysheba Stakes. In his first start for Millennium, he won the 2007 Pacific Classic in its inaugural running on a synthetic surface.

This season, Student Council won the Pimlico Special, finished second in the Whitney, and finished third in the Hollywood Gold Cup, all Grade 1 events. He has earnings of $1,547,731 to date.

Student Council is out of the Kris S. mare Class Kris, a multiple graded winner. He is a half-brother to Grade 3 winner Gradepoint.
